Writing this review late, but wanted to share my experience! We had such a great experience with milestones events, Alicia and her staff were my lifesaver!!! Hired them for full coordination for my destination wedding back home to Hawaii and it was so worth it! From changes in location to adding additional vendors Alicia was on top of it, always with a can do attitude and so flexible!! She recommended such great vendors and down to the details even loaned out her own decor!! She took our vision and turned it into a reality! 5 months later and we're still getting told how beautiful the wedding was!!! So thank you so much Alicia and Jen, would recommend you guys to anyone hiring a wedding planner, milestone events goes above and beyond!!!

Alicia is in one word AMAZING!

I am so happy to have found Milestone Events for our wedding. As a destination bride, I knew I needed someone in Hawaii to help coordinate with vendors as well as be there the day of the wedding. I researched quite a few wedding planners and when I talked to Alicia on the phone for the first time we instantly clicked! She is so nice, thoughtful, organized, easy to contact and knows the ins and outs of the industry.

Alicia provided us with a list of recommended vendors, and while I did research other vendors, we went with everyone she recommend as they truly were the best and the right fit for our wedding. Alicia made the planning of the wedding way less stressful even though I could never make a decision and emailed Alicia all the time, she always had an answer for everything!

A few days before the wedding it was announced that Hurricane Iselle was aiming to hit the island the night of the wedding. Since our wedding was outdoors, that was pretty much the worse and I had no idea at that point what to do. Well thank goodness for Alicia, she was so calming and reassuring and already had 2 back up plans in place.

Day of the wedding the weather was gorgeous, however as it approached the start time of our ceremony the weather took a turn for the worse. Alicia and her team were out in the pouring rain, making sure our reception area and our guests weren't getting wet. If it wasn't for Alicia we would have been screwed. She was there the whole entire time and everything ran flawlessly! She even made the rain stop :)

Thank you so much Alicia for everything we couldn't have asked for anything better! All of our guests commented on what an awesome job you did. The locals will be recommending you to all their friends as well as the entire bridal party wants you to be their wedding planners here in Canada!

Alicia and her team are a dream come true!! Multiple vendors recommended her to us, and we are so happy we took their advice. We had a destination wedding with 150 guests, and Alicia and her team made all of the coordination stress free and helped bring all of our dreams to reality!

I was so amazed how smoothly everything went on our wedding day. Alicia went above and beyond and thought about so many details I wasn't even expecting. She brought her own gold chargers for our sweetheart table as an added touch, and touchup kits for the bathrooms with bug spray, etc. for our guests. She made sure we were on schedule for every event, but was able to go with the flow when the speeches went a little long (thanks, dad ;) ) and we had to move around the fire performance. We were able to enjoy every moment of our big day thanks to Alicia's awesome team handling all of the details and taking on all the stress.

She is fun to get to know and has a loving and care-free personality. She is very organized, has amazing relationships with the best vendors on the island, and was able to work with us on complicated requests (ie. party buses, after party venue, spontaneous singing by the groom) while still staying within our budget. She coordinated all of the colors and style since we were in California and couldn't see everything in person, and when we showed up at the venue on our wedding day it was even more than we had imagined. Our guests absolutely loved her and her team, and we received numerous compliments about how amazing she was and what a great job her and her team were doing. We were all in awe of how perfectly it all came together.

Thank you Milestone Events Hawaii for making it the best day of our lives, and an event we will all remember forever!!

I didn't realize that I forgot to leave this feedback...sorry Alicia!

First of all, I was a destination bride so I knew I would need some help. I was able to plan things and reserve everything but I hired Alicia (and Jen) so they can help me on the day of the wedding.

Alicia and I were in contact months before the wedding. I flew to Hawaii in Sept (didn't get married until June) so we ironed out a lot of details then. In no time, she had a timeline for us ready!

The day of the wedding went so smoothly! I didn't even realize all the hardwork she and Jen put in until after the wedding. All the details we talked about...from the timing of things to the placement of my decoration. I was so happy!

Totally worth getting a planner whether or not they help you with the whole thing or the just on the day of! I recommend Alicia because of her passion to make your special day the best day! She has a lot of useful tricks up her sleeves! Thank you again Alicia!!!

I cannot write enough positive reviews for Alicia with Milestone Events! She literally turned my dream wedding into a reality. We planned our May 2013 wedding from the mainland, and throughout our wedding planning process, she went above and beyond (a thousand times) for us. From phone calls, to emails and then sit-downs in person when we were visiting Hawaii, she was amazing. Honest, warm and beyond dedicated, Alicia is the only reason our wedding turned out the way that it did. She understood what was important to us, and she made those things a priority. All of the details (including coordinating with all my vendors and troubleshooting problems on the day of the wedding) would have been a nightmare, but Alicia took care of everything. I am so honored that I got the chance to work with her.

Where to begin? Alicia Hollinger is an angel sent from Wedding Planning heaven. I really feel like she became part of the family during my wedding. She knew exactly what we needed when we needed it. She had fun creative ideas and her hard work never stopped! She was organized, on time and definitely the captain of our wedding ship. At any time if I had any questions she would stop what she was doing and explain the details to me. Her staff was just as good and she was a direct reflection of their leader. The night of the wedding was filled with a beautifully orchestrated ceremony/reception, attentive staff, and thoughtful details for our send off. Alicia is the only person that I would trust with my special day.

Wow. I don't know where to start. First off, I'm the groom, so maybe there's a different perspective on this. I'll try and be brief as well. My wife and I agreed to have a small wedding to keep it simple and less expensive. Impossible. I was completely against hiring a wedding planner. I thought they were for rich people having huge weddings. I am a smart guy though and I gave in and hiring Alicia was literally the best decision we made through the entire process. I would always go to weddings where I knew the both sides of the families extensively and wonder who is that person that the bride and groom are SO close with? It was their wedding planner. And now I understand why. I could tell you how the DJ showed up with NO music for the ceremony (seriously.. a DJ with no music) and how she had our songs memorizes and downloaded them ON A BOAT on the way to the island and saved the entire ceremony.. Or I could tell you how I feel. A) I consider her a new good friend. A better friend than some of the old good friends. B) I feel like I can call her in 2 or 3 years, tell her that I have no idea what to get Christine for her birthday or anniversary, and she'd probably pull 5 incredible gift ideas out of her head in 2 minutes. She is that in tune with her clients, and that thoughtful. I'm sure there are other great wedding planners in Oahu, but I'd bet my surfboard collection Alicia is by far the best.
Enjoy your wedding, use the best planner possible.

Aloha.

Working with Alicia from Milestone Events was such a wonderful experience.

My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with every detail that unfolded that day at Kualoa Ranch (Secret Island ceremony/ Hale Moli'i reception on 7/6/12). We were nothing but thrilled with the decor, her vendor recommendations, and the insanely amazing food by "Beaches and Backyards" Catering.

She understood my vision and translated it to her many vendors to give us the simple, fun, but elegant event that we desired. We gave both our local and out-of-town guests a great upscale luau that they will never forget - complete with a fire show from Chief Sielu!! What a wonderfully fun and fantastic time.

She knew when to fight for something that I really wanted (wooden tables, no rented tablecloths and plastic tables!) balanced with advice based on her own experience with the venue and the many weddings she has overseen. (Rent a tent in case it rains even if you want to dine under the stars. Trust me - do it.)

I live in San Francisco and we held phonecalls as needed since I couldn't meet her in person. She came prepared for our calls with great suggestions and helped to brainstorm on the spot for unique ideas to make the event special but to keep our budget in mind. We shared updates and photos and checked in as needed. I didn't even meet her until we flew to Oahu for the big event, but felt as if I had known her for years. I was in complete trust of her services and cannot recommend her enough.
